Hike this today, what a beautiful day for a hike. Water over trails quite a bit, be prepared to get your feet wet. Wet and slippery.

Pretty easy trail which was great for our two kids 5 and 2 year old. Nice warm day, made it to the kiln which was pretty neat. Has been reported a bear siting in the area last week, but lots of people were out on the trail including some joggers. Nice little adventure for kids and the dog I would recommend for people with kids. Not a whole lot to see but still nice.

Coal Lake Trail to North Lake

Hike this trail today. Kicked our butts. Would love to know the elevation gain. It was pretty good until we got about half way and then there were some icy spots. Up at the top towards the second ridge it was deep snow. There was no trail you just follow someone else's steps up to the top ridge where you can look down on North Lake. Didn't look like anyone hiked down the lake. I uploaded some pictures from the hike today.

Its a rough trail, allot of rocks, slippery and muddy. Several places you are taking big steps up, and a few climbs over trees fallen on the trail. Not as maintained as others. Was chilly most of the way, definitely layer up. Road up is 1/4 paved, rest of the way to trailhead is rough and potholes will get you, take it slow and watch your way. Hiked in late February, but am sure that it normally is not a winter trail.

Big Four Ice Caves Trail

Headed up this afternoon, was an easy hike. The trail is really well taken care of, slight graded inclines, but nothing too hard. There are benches towards the end to sit and enjoy the view. Ice caves were beautiful, even though they are far less than normal due to the less than wintery winter. Still worth the drive and short hike.

Mt. Forgotten Meadows

The trail was snow free until about the last mile. Very light snow up to the overlook and then deeper snow in the meadows. Snowshoes weren't needed but micro-spikes would make it easier on the way down. Views from the meadows were amazing. Big peaks in every direction including Glacier Peak. I almost turned around at the overlook not knowing where the meadows were. Luckily I found some tracks in the snow that lead through the woods and after another 10 minutes made it to the meadows where the views just got better.
